Color Cast

An unwanted color shift in the whole image, which can be caused by reflected light from a nearby object. For example, many photos taken using flourescent lighting tend to have a greenish color cast.

The original image (left) was taken with existing ambient light (no flash) and has a blue color cast, or “cool” color temperature. The image on the right has been adjusted to reflect warmer colors.
